Overview

We have visited Carsington reservoir several times with my husband walking, using a wheelchair and then arm crutches. The reservoir is well run by Severn Trent Water. This is a great place to go with the family for some fresh air. There are accessible paths to go around the reservoir, a nature observation hut, restaurant, shops and a playground as well as plenty of picnic areas.

Transport & Parking

3.5

Plenty of free disabled parking spaces but I am unsure of public transport links to the reservoir.

Access

5

Lots of well-maintained wheelchair accessible paths(especially the flat path to Stones Island). The restaurant is accessed via a lift in the main building. The children's playground is accessible with a wheelchair(if a little steep in places). There are lots of benches in the playground and seating areas in the courtyard next to snack bars and shops.

Toilets

5

Toilets in the main building and courtyard.

Staff

Staff are helpful and attentive towards people with additional needs.
